An extension to a Victorian terraced house to form a light filled kitchen and family room integrated into a redesigned garden area.
The intention was to replace and enlarge and improve a dark kitchen area to form a new informal living space with direct access to the garden and to open up views through the ground floor of the house to the garden.

Emerging designer Chiara Ferrari masterminded the interior concept and fit out of a new studio space in South London, for photographer John Ross. When Ferrari was invited to work on the photographic studio’s interior design, the large, 400-sq meters space was just an empty concrete shell with no partitions. The designer’s concept plays with the contrasts between the existing space’s rough- and-ready quality and the sophistication of a new, neutral (black, white and grey) and contemporary material and colour palette.

70 South Franklin Street in Nyack, New York is the studio and gallery space for furniture designer Blake Tovin. Conceived as an intervention, the structure of Tovin Studios is a former warehouse. The project investigates economy of means, materiality, natural lighting and sustainable construction techniques. The facade is clad in weathering steel. Four major “light scoop” sky lights deliver day light and are a passive solar heating system. The project is currently awaiting consulting with energy modeling from NYSERDA.

The renovation of this historical costume makeover studio in Arashiyama, Kyoto, has been completed. A 40 year old building that seemed like a traditional old house has been renovated to a modern shop. There was a need for us to find a design solution that took into account the local-ism and landscape features of Arashiyama, Kyoto. Not many buildings consider the landscape that they inhabit. Even though there are limitations to the form and finishes of buildings due to landscape regulations around this area. The buildings that have generic tourists attraction features, historical architecture and a traditional Kyoto town houses create a miscellaneous town.

This project is a lane way structure that was designed prior to the City of Vancouver’s Laneway Housing Initiative. It was conceived with two specific programmatic scenarios in mind – and immediate requirement for an 800sf working artist’s studio, storage space, and covered parking space; as well as a future agenda to be able to easily occupy the structure into a one-bedroom lane way dwelling.

Stealth Barn is a project that sits next to and complements Ochre Barn, a large threshing barn converted by CTA to a home and studio. This addition was to provide a self-contained unit that could equally act as a guest house, studio or meeting place, depending on time of year and workloads: a retreat, but also a place of inspiration, enjoyment and a place of work and home without compromising the experience of either. Sitting in the exposed expanse of the Cambridgeshire fens, it is a bold, simple form, reminiscent of the barn it accompanies. Placed perpendicular to the existing barn, it stands to create and define a slightly more sheltered and casual garden which melts into the fens. This clear and simple move also hints at the memory of a former farm yard.
